Minor Sports Injuries
Minor sports injuries can be defined as; musculoskeletal issues arising from sporting or athletic activities. This therefore means that almost every part of the body may suffer from a minor sports injury.
Common problems encountered are:
- Achilles tendon injuries
- Calf strains
- Groin and thigh sprains
- Hamstring strains
- Knee pain (Runners Knee)
- Lower back pain
- Shoulder sprains (rotator cuff injuries)
- Tennis elbow
In many cases these injuries are a consequence of the overuse of a body part due to the demands of the specific sport. It can be frustrating when you pull a muscle or have some niggling injury as it may mean you can no longer participate in the sport you enjoy and in turn may result in a loss of fitness. If these problems are ignored and the sport or activity that caused the injury is continued, it could lead to the injury becoming chronic.
